Who We Are 


McElderry House Lodging is a special place that provides lodging accommodations for the families of patients traveling to Baltimore for medical care at the Johns Hopkins Medical Complex. We also welcome medical professionals and students who are visiting the Campus. 

McElderry House Lodging offers seven townhouses, all situated across from the east (Wolfe St.) entrance of Johns Hopkins Hospital. Townhouses may be rented in their entirety, or as single bedrooms with private or shared baths and a shared common area.

The townhouses are completely furnished, including a fully equipped kitchen and washer & dryer units, linens, bedding, towels, and books!!  Local phone service, free wireless internet, cable television, and central heat & air are provided. All of the townhouses are close enough to Johns Hopkins to take advantage of free, hospital-provided shuttle service back and forth across the Medical Campus. 

Please explore our web site and feel free to contact us with any questions.




In August of 1992, Johns Hopkins Home Care Group's first "travel" home care nurse arrived in Baltimore, accompanied by her fourteen year-old daughter. The nursing assignment was supposed to be temporary, and they both anticipated going back to their home in Michigan within a year's time.

The teenager became increasingly aware of a strange pain in her upper left arm, and in March 1993 finally brought it to her mother's attention. She was promptly referred to the Johns Hopkins Orthopedic Department and was subsequently diagnosed with Osteogenic Sarcoma, a type of bone cancer. She underwent two months of intensive chemotherapy, followed by a twelve hour limb-salvage surgical procedure, involving both a bone graft and a shoulder prosthesis. Ten more months of chemotherapy followed the surgery, and there was no recurrence of the cancer. She remains healthy today.

After her daughter's recovery, the mother founded McElderry House Lodging in 1996. Today, both of them manage McElderry House Lodging, providing comfortable, home-like accommodations to out-of-town families coping with challenging medical situations.
